Chefs Collaborative Harvest BBQ on Schartner Farm

I am so proud to be participating in this event for the third year.  Rich Schartner and the entire Schartner family has so graciously once again invited us to celebrate the fall harvest, and our sense of community, pride, passion and togetherness in honest, sincere, hand-made, crafted, delicious food and drink.   It couldn’t be a more perfect backdrop to get together for this purpose.  An event put together by chefs, for chefs, with live music and great beverages, the BBQ is sure to be an incredible time. Hope you can join us!

All proceeds to benefit Chefs Collaborative, the leading nonprofit network of chefs that’s changing the sustainable food landscape using the power of connections, education and responsible buying decisions.
